Back pain hurts!

Your back pain can be present in many ways including a dull ache, sharp pains, piercing pains, or a burning sensation.

Did you know back pain is common, and the most frequent condition we see. At least 80% of people will experience back pain at some point.  But with so much information available about back pain treatments and causes, it’s difficult to know which advice to follow.

What’s causing your back pain?

It could be one of many things, such as

  • Spinal disc pathology
  • Trauma or whiplash
  • Postural problems
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Joint disruption
  • Spinal surgery
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Hip dysfunction
  • Pinched nerves
  • Hypermobility
  • Rheumatological conditions
  • Muscular strains

We are here to put everything right

We will thoroughly assess your back pain to determine the cause of your pain and what we need to do to resolve it.

You are the most important element of treatment, so we will listen to you and work with you to reduce the problem. Together we will design you a treatment plan and rehabilitation programme that fits with your lifestyle in order to get rid of your pain and to get you moving. We will ensure you understand why you have back pain and understand your diagnosis.

We are one of the few clinics in the UK run by a specialist McKenzie therapist.

This means that we deliver contemporary physiotherapy, where we work with you to solve the back pain.

The McKenzie method of mechanical diagnosis and therapy is a world renowned and scientifically proven method of assessing, treating and managing back, neck and joint, muscle and soft tissue problems.

Assessment performed by our highly trained clinicians will quickly determine the best course of treatment. It is usually possible to classify your problem and identify a specialised plan within the first few sessions. Research has shown a McKenzie assessment to be as reliable as x-rays and MRI scans to determine the source of the problem. A McKenzie assessment can therefore reduce the need for invasive procedures and expensive investigations. Should mechanical therapy not be indicated, the assessment provides information on what alternative means of intervention or investigation may be appropriate.

By being actively involved you will learn how to read your pain and successfully self-treat. This will help you to reduce your symptoms rapidly in the future and manage them effectively long term. In addition it will reduce your number of visits to our clinic.  The result? Control of your body.
